These lesson and practice worksheets for Using a Thesaurus are perfect for students who need to learn how to use a thesaurus to learn and use new vocabulary and improve their writing! First, a two-page guided lesson takes students through the parts of a thesaurus entry (for the word minor), with quick explanations on entry word, part of speech, synonyms, definitions, related words, contrasting words, and antonyms. A sample entry is given, and students are directed to locate each.
Have students complete additional work with a PRACTICE worksheet, which has students using another sample entry (for the word abandon), prompting them to find these parts on their own! Simply print and go! Answer keys are included.
